Roasted Tomato Bruschetta | Wolf Gourmet

Roasted tomatoes don’t need much to make them shine: a little olive oil, some salt, and thyme is all you need. It’s a classic combination and this is one of those situations where simplicity is key. I like to roast the tomatoes in a skillet and the Wolf Gourmet 8.5” skillet is perfect for the job. It has a thick base and ensures even, consistent heating. This skillet has become my new go-to for everything from bacon and eggs to steak dinners with caramelized onions.

The countertop oven also does a great job of slowly roasting the tomatoes. The ROAST setting blisters the tomatoes while keeping their shape intact. It also perfectly toasts the bread in TOAST mode.
